The Virtual Paintout for May was the 10th I've enjoyed participating in. I started actually painting some pieces from my browsing when I started this blog. Writing about it all made it even more fun.
Bill Guffey created The Virtual Paintout and he selects the monthly locations. Artists virtually go to the location for the month and use Google Street View to find their view to draw or paint. Bill posts everyone's work on Facebook and his blog. I think it's so interesting to virtually look around cities and countrysides all over the world, wherever Google has covered with the Street View.
The location for May was the Lido di Jesolo in the province of Venice, Italy. There were some farming areas but the main street looked very exciting. The Lido di Jesolo depends on tourists who come for its 9 mile long beach. The many hotels are only a few feet from their private beaches.
I always have to stop looking around these beautiful locations and start painting before the end of the month. I painted 2 small gouache pieces from this exciting place.
